As a coach who has coached his own children, it's almost impossible to push other players on your team if your child does not want to be there and lets it be known. There is no problem with him stepping down. He needed to leave for the sake of his daughter and to have time to spend with his family.

The issue is how he handled it and his timing. As the only coach some of the girls have ever had, sending out an email saying he quit a week after telling his team he would be coaching them going into NPL is insulting. The 11 and 12 year old girls who he coached for 6 years obviously meant very little to him or he would have made this decision earlier, let his team know of his decision, finish out the season and assist in an orderly transition. Sending out an email using a child to defend your actions is disgraceful. Forget being a coach, a parent should be shielding their children from this sort of behavior not be used as the justification.

There is no possibilty that a mature man could conclude he had to abandon girls he had coached since they were 5, in two days, because his 12 year old daughter, after a loss, said she didn't want him coaching her any more. If every parent/coach quit immediately after being told by there child they didn't want to play for them, coaching your own child would become a criminal offense.

The way he handled himself and the situation could not have been done any worse and as a parent of one of the children he hurt it is unforgivable.


Name please, don't try to play this like it's CSL and Mike Riccadelli is stepping down.


If his daughter quit soccer then u can see him walking away. But this is not the case. If it was a case of not wanting to coach anymore, let someone else parent administrate and let the trainer coach. My gut says that he had enough of the headaches, the parent drama, the player divas, and needed to walk. My connections tell me she is playing for another club, not quitting soccer. Can anyone confirm?

Thats the problem with this country. People always looking for a divorce and who suffers? The children....

Stop trying to stir the pot. If you do a little detective work I'm sure you can figure out who the coach is

The name is out there (read up in this thread), CSL has done and probably will do nothing. On another subject:

Rumor control: I heard a rumor that some of the Commack GU12 teams (going to GU13 in the fall) are considering joining the RPL. I just checked and none of the 4 teams in the current GU12 line up finished higher than 5th. D1 and D4 both finished in 7th and D5 and D6 finished in 5th. Why would coaches and or parents be pushing their kids into a league that is supposed offer tougher competition, when the current competition was already too challenging. Wouldn't staying in LIJSL a little longer let these kids develop and have a chance to win against more evenly matched teams?

Again, "just a rumor" I overheard, but i was curious, seems like a counterproductive move to me.

The GU12 going to GU13 teams...One is coached by Riccadelli and another team by his Goon, they will never go to the RPL.

Of the other 2 one coach has the guts to do it. Not sure who the other is. This is frowned upon in the CSL.

Anything productive is frowned upon by the CSL because the board member's kids cannot make the grade if the team pushes forward. CSL is about mediocrity and politics.
